The course will cover the range of intermediate asana including inversion variations, arm balances, and body knotting; supine and seated pranayama; and philosophical concepts as expounded upon in the writings of B.K.S., Geeta, and Prashant Iyengar. Throughout, the aim will be upon recognizing the bhavana or the feeling imparted by each asana in order to build a fund of experiential knowledge - for practice and experience of the essence on one's own.
